This week you will be receiving a letter about our Transport day on 25th January. We are launching our new topic and would like the children to immerse themselves in it! We will be cooking, tasting, experimenting and exploring, moving around in different groups and to different classes. We hope the children will get alot of inspiration for Travel and Transport (they may also come home rather tired!!).
Most of the children have come home with a Spelling Book recently and should practise these regularly. We find that writing them in different styles and colours is a good way to practise them and help them to focus on each letter. Our phonics groups continue to develop and children will move around as neccessary from time to time.
Please can I remind everyone of the importance of reading most nights, especially to reinforce those key words . This regular practise makes a amazing difference to the children's reading progress at this key stage in their development.
This week , in maths, we have been learning how to find halves of numbers to 10/20 or beyond.Last week we looked at doubles. There is a game called 'Hit The Button' which is a fast response to simple questions that you can set to different maths concepts and number ranges, well worth searching for and having a go of !
